This is me

I started this blog a couple of years ago because, well, an astrologer told me to. Seriously. So that night I started a blog. I’m very obedient. But I thought it would be a good way to develop my writing at the time and to get some thoughts on paper, or digital paper at least. But I didn’t know what to write about, so I stopped.

But then! Through processes detailed in this blog, I decided to try IVF to get pregnant and have a baby, solo. A “single mother by choice”, or so I was planning. So I have been detailing that process, its ups and ultimate downs, and in doing so I hoped to help or inform other women going through the same issues.

Very sadly, the IVF didn’t work, so now this blog will try to unravel how to make my life better. And hopefully my discoveries will help you too!

I believe the trick is in dipping into the “juice” or the “rasa” as they call it in Ayurveda, the traditional medical system of India. We need to live juicily, so join me while I discover what that is.

Love: Yoga, walking, travel, the sea. Haven’t been to nearly enough places, but France and India hold enduring appeal to me. Red wine, champagne, cooking and good food. . My cat, Daisy Lula McCatten – she’s very cute! Think life should be ‘juicy’! Interested in Eastern thought, ‘spirituality’, quantum physics so far as my tiny brain can comprehend it, the ineffable wonder of the world.

Think it’s important to be kind to people, though it’s harder than it sounds.

Work – financial editor, freelance writer for http://www.naturaltherapypages.com.au, and now blogger (you can read my natural therapies article here: http://www.naturaltherapypages.com.au/articles/author/michelle_newton).

I’m also trained as a yoga teacher, though don’t teach now, just write about it.

    Hi there
    My old London flatmate and friend Pauline O sent me your blog address because I shared with her my experience of IVF and freezing my eggs 12 months ago. After reading the first line of the December 8th entry and feeling extremely excited for you, I went back and read the entire history of your blog and then finished off reading the entry of Dec 8th. I really do believe positive thoughts and energy is paramount. I wish you well and look forward to reading your progress.
    Bye for now.
    PS. I’m also planning on the donor option at Easter 2012, just saving my pennies to hopefully be able to take 7-12 months leave

    • Hi Kate – glad I have such an avid reader! I saw Pauline on Friday and she told me you were reading. Thanks so much for your thoughts.

      Good luck with the process next year. Hopefully by then I’ll be more than a few months preggers! Will you use your frozen eggs, or go for some fresh ones?
